    LIANZA OLDER SERVICES NETWORK
    Wednesdays, every second month @ 1PM

    LIANZA is pleased to offer a time and space for librarians and library staff to connect in a peer-to-peer network. This network aims to provide support from within the profession for anyone engaging with older people in your community. We invite you to jump online on the last Wednesday of every second month and to bring your ideas and questions to share with colleagues around the country. From working to become dementia friendly to providing library services that respond to the needs of a growing older population as the  Boomers and Gen X  continue towards retirement and beyond. Similarly to the widely successful LIANZA CYS Network, we will need you to help identify topics, suggest speakers and share your ideas and successes. Where will this take us? Let’s try it and see what happens!

    The first network meeting for 2022 will be in March and then every two months.

    An exciting schedule is coming together and if you have any suggestions about topics or speakers please get in touch ana@lianza.org.nz

    This how it is shaping up

      Reading for Pleasure:
      what has your library been doing to support reading for pleasure over the summer? What has been 'successful' and what will you tweak or change next time ? Has this summer been different, has your library been quieter than usual and how has your programming responded ?  Come and share your summer experiences with your colleagues.


      We are seeking more topics  so please send your ideas to ana@lianza.org.nz

        NEURODIVERSITY AND DYSLEXIA - ENGAGING WITH LIBRARIES

        Tuesday February 15 @ 2PM-4PM

        LIANZA is delighted to partner with Learning Differences Aotearoa Trust to offer libraries the opportunity to increase awareness, develop understanding and make adaption to better support people who are neurodiverse.

        You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of what neurodiversity means and what it means for those who are neurodiverse. Your increased awareness and understanding will enable you to develop strategies, techniques and adaptations to engage more effectively with a wider range of people in your community. This workshop is led by Chris Cole, Learning Differences Advisor for Learning Differences Aotearoa Trust.

        During this two-hour workshop you will learn what it means to be neurodiverse and the impact this impacts on a person’s ability to engage with their library. You will work with other participants to brainstorm strategies for your library and hear from Saniya Thompson, Community Connections Librarian at Invercargill City Libraries about practical applications and ideas for initiatives.

        I just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming to the library to educate us on dyslexia. The information has made a lasting impression and has been at the forefront of our minds this week, some changes in the library are underway! Amy, Queenstown Library

        This workshop is limited to 30 participants.

        Chris Cole is the Learning Differences Advisor for Learning Differences Aotearoa Trust and has been presenting workshops to parents, educators, children and organisations since 2016. Her presentation style means the information is presented in an articulate, easy to understand, interactive method that builds onto the attendee’s knowledge from their own personal starting point. 

        Chris’s extensive knowledge and expertise comes in part from living as a person with compensated dyslexia and from her dyslexic sons’ schooling journey.  Through her role as Learning Advisor she has helped create and develop a variety of programmes, such as Dyslexia Support Southland, Growing Stars®, and Adult Dyslexia Support Group Southland as well as consulting for government agencies and reference groups on dyslexia and neurodiversity. She is a Dyslexia and Neurodiversity Coach with Unique Minds and is the author of a book about dyslexia “All a Part of Me”.

        Saniya Thompson is a Community Connections Librarian at the Invercargill City Libraries and a formerly an award-winning Community Development Officer. New to the professional library world, Saniya is a long-time public library patron and advocate, she believes library plays an important role in building social capital. She is passionate about people and driving sustainable changes through community engagement.

        Outside of work Saniya can be found in a middle of a kickboxing ring in her international referee capacity or up in the air defying laws of gravity at South Pole Dance aerial studio, which she co-founded in 2015.
